A new dance night to keep it hot and heavy in the cold and snowy
As the biting cold takes up residency in New England, the local dance music climate is just getting heated up. Boston and Cambridge have been hubs for the renaissance of underground house, techno, and dance with the ever-growing population of crews and parties. You can head out on just about any night of the week and be serenaded by the 4/4 beat from top talent, both locally and nationally.
So to get 2013 off to a fresh start, there’s a new kid in town: Fourplay.
Born from the concerted efforts of the dark-haired CreateSpace Collab (CSC) boys Matt McNeill, Chad Spigner, and George Zygouris (who also bring you Sweet Shop at Good Life), and with the addition of the unparalleled Randy “The Bison” Deshais (resident and cofounder at RE:SET Wednesdays), Fourplay is about to set this town on fire.
Don’t let the name fool you: From the looks of it, the play will continue before, during, and after. Here’s the dish from McNeill on behalf of CSC:
CSC has been making serious waves in the community with the recent bookings of top-tier talent. What will make Fourplay different than Sweet Shop?
Generally, I think Fourplay will feature a bit more of a refined sound aimed at a [discerning] listener/party-goer. Not to say that it will be better or worse.
Fourplay is aiming to be a more sophisticated and sensual experience than the fun and energetic vibe curated at the Sweet Shop events.
Will Sweet Shop continue?
Sweet Shop will continue.
Phew! So how will Fourplay be defined against the other myriad of house/techno nights in town?
It will be a haven for trendsetters and will ultimately become a planned-for destination of electronic music enthusiasts and bon-vivants in Eastern Massachusetts.
Why the name?
After seeing the aesthetic of the room, we knew it needed a very sexy and sensual vibe.
Because it’s the beginning of the weekend, there are four people involved and we play and push 4/4 music, we decided “fourplay” was a title that helped to promote the idea we’re hoping to create.
Makes sense. And how often can we expect to get hot and heavy with it?
Currently, the frequency is once every month.
If you could sum up the vibe you’re aiming for in a word or phrase what would it be?
We’re really excited to debut this brilliant new room in Boston with some of the most lush and innovative dance music we can find and bring to every event.
Their inaugural party, slated for Friday, January 11, featuring Berlin-based DJ Tennis (off Life and Death Records), will surely be a night to remember. Because you know what they say—the best way to keep warm is through body heat.
